Conan O'Brien is funny. And charmingly honest.
On the heels of last night's NBC-dissing monologue, the current host of The Tonight Show has released a statement saying he has no interest in continuing with the long-running franchise if it means pushing the show to a later time slot and once again following Jay Leno.
"People of Earth: In the last few days, I've been getting a lot of sympathy calls, and I want to start by making it clear that no one should waste a second feeling sorry for me," he begins. "I've been suddenly put in a very public predicament and my bosses are demanding an immediate decision."
He explains what accepting the role once inhabited by Johnny Carson meant to him and what the show as a whole means to him. And then he gets to the crux of his point.
